What were Leah and Rachel competing for?

Why did they give their handmaids on Jacob?

Simple: attention.

 

Jacob had married Leah and he was unhappy so he married Rachel.

So she was unhappy for she was barren according to Scripture.

And she made him unhappy.

To countermand her bareness, she gives him Bilah.

Meanwhile Leah is unhappy because even though she had brought fourth four boys already, Jacob's eyes are for Rachel.

So she gives him Zilpah, her handmaid.

And when all is said and done, Scripture does not tell us "they lived happy for ever after."

Call it what you want but God's covenant is between one man and one woman.

Anything else is an unhappy state of affairs.
